I am an astrophysicist at the Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Marseille
(LAM). My research mainly revolves around the analysis of radiation from exploding
stars known as supernovae.
At LAM I lead the Transients discussion group.
I defended my PhD thesis, entitled
"Optical Spectra of Thermonuclear Supernovae in the
Local and Distant Universe", at the
(Munich, Germany) in November 2005.
During my postdoc at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) I founded the CfA Supernova Archive, where you can freely download light curves and spectra of many supernovae.
You can view my CV here [pdf]

This research has benefited from funding by the Agence Nationale de la Recherche from 2011 to 2016, under grant number ANR-2011-Blanc-SIMI-5-6-007-01.
